First click on button not working in section with post value



First click on a button is not working in section with post value.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Click on the textbox with an OnChange action.
  2. Enter the value in the textbox.
  3. Directly click on the button.

Root Cause

The setup is attempting to fire two separate asynchronous events simultaneously, an ONCHANGE on the input field and an ONCLICK on the button. When the user enters a value in a field, then clicks a button, only the ONCHANGE from the field is triggered. Therefore they have to click the button again in order to trigger the ONCLICK.


Remove the ONCHANGE from the input fields, which has fixed the multiple click issue.
